Employment

Our experience in such matters is diverse. We have defended employers against discrimination claims and Fair Labor Standards Act lawsuits, represented executives in actions to enforce severance provisions in their employment agreements against their former employers, and represented employers in actions to enforce restrictive covenants against their former employees. We have also provided advice to our clients regarding compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act, the WARN Act, and other federal and state laws.  While much of our practice is in court, we handle many of matters through arbitration.

Our current and recent clients include Swire Oilfield Services, L.L.C., The Times-Picayune, Berk-Cohen Associates, L.L.C., and former executives of Chicago Bridge & Iron Company, N.V.

Examples of our current and recent matters include:

  • Defense of an employer against discrimination claims related to lay-offs
  • Defense of an oilfield services company against a Fair Labor Standards Act collective action
  • Representation of former executives in an action to enforce severance provisions in their employment agreements
  • Advice to a local company that was discontinuing operations at a particular location regarding compliance with the WARN Act
